Our Story...

What our customers are saying...


A love for travel and a passion for delicious food are at the very heart of Smokin Chikin’s explosion into the Clarksville food scene. The two founding families are excellent friends and share the same life and family values; the same remarkable values they successfully weave throughout their restaurant.

Roger and Mohsun, along with their wives Sarika and Oneeba and their children, have lived in Clarksville, TN for more than 20 years combined. It is where they call home.

Regularly hosting friends and family is where they shine. Their culture provides for warm hospitality and meaningful conversations over a buffet of delicious international dishes, all prepared tirelessly from scratch. Everyone departs fully satisfied, anticipating the next invitation.

 “Smokin Chikin is an extension of who we are”, the four owners humbly admit, “it’s how we treat our friends and family and that’s why we consider everyone not as our customers, but as our guests!”

Their travels have taken them to different continents and regions across the globe, all the while experiencing different cuisines and unintentionally gathering recipes. Some even made it on the menu, like the popular Caribbean BBQ marinade and Island Fried Rice from Trinidad & Tobago – from where Roger originally hails.

So why “International Fusion” and why Clarksville?

There has been a growing appetite for American-inspired ethnic foods from around the world and only metropolitan cities tend to benefit from having such restaurants. Clarksville deserves to have a restaurant that offers just that –  a place where you can…

​​​​​~~ 05/20/2019 We stopped by here on a recent road trip. I wasn't sure what to expect based on the website - but let me tell you - it was FANTASTIC! The staff was super friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. It is only chicken, but the sides alone could be their own meal. Great Vegetarian options too! Enjoyed it so much - just wish there were more locations near us!

~~ 05/07/2019  Everytime we go we are generously greeted and feel very welcome. It is extremely clean and the food is worth waiting for, very delicious and always Fresh. We love trying all of the different flavors they offer and are never disappointed when trying something new. I love their Tabouli salad, and their rotisserie chicken is the best in town. Worth a trip to dine in or even take home a plate. Very generous portions as well. Definitely going back and highly recommend it.

~~ 04/20/2019 We try to visit Smokin Chicken every time we are in Clarksville! It is SO good! All the sides are delicious. Love the spicy bbq sauce and the peri peri. Hummus is great, chicken potato soup, tabouli, seasoned fries, everything is spot on! Rotisserie chicken is delicious! 

~~ 03/11/2019 My husband had the pulled chicken with Caribbean sauce in a pita. Great chicken and sauce, fresh pita. I had quarter chicken with the la brasa sauce, 2 words, Ah-Mazing! : ) tabouli salad and roasted red pepper hummus were Fantastic! Deliciousness all around! Thank You! And I'm sorry, didn't catch her name at the counter, but she was awesome! Thank you thank you thank you!

~~ 02/19/2019  We stopped here randomly after seeing it on a trip to TN. The chicken was absolutely delicious. I assumed it was going to be comparable to Boston Market, but this is far better. My husband got the 1/2 chicken.

~~ 12/21/2018  If you are in and around Clarksville... you cant miss this place!! This small locally owned business takes their food very seriously and will tantalise your tastebuds with a huge variety of rotisserie chicken! Simply put the food was SCRUMPTIOUS and finger licking good! Absolutely loved the place and would highly recommend!
